The machine runs Windows 7 Home edition. I'm trying to use rsync to backup files to a linux box. The rsync command runs fine in cygwin. I resolved an earlier error by running the cygwin terminal as Administrator. Here's what I see:
Helen@Helen-PC ~ $ cron-config Cron is already installed as a service under account .\Helen. Do you want to remove or reinstall it? (yes/no) no Running cron_diagnose ... ... no problem found. cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: StartService: Win32 error 1069: The service did not start due to a logon failure.
Here are what I'm guessing are the most important bits from cronbug.txt:
Current version -rwxr-xr-x 1 Helen None 5304 Feb 15 2010 /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/cron-4.1-59.README Running crons: None Crontabs: -rw-r----- 1 Helen root 431 Apr 27 09:09 /var/cron/tabs/Helen Service : cron Display name : Cron daemon Current State : Stopped Command : /usr/sbin/cron -n stdin path : /dev/null stdout path : /var/log/cron.log stderr path : /var/log/cron.log Environment : CYGWIN=" " Process Type : Own Process Startup : Automatic Account : .\Helen
/var/log/cron.log doesn't exists but
Helen owns the directory. I get the same error message when I try to start cron directly, e.g.
net start cron. Any help is appreciated!
